As reported on tsn.ca, the Oilers have signed Adam Oates to a one year contract.

If Oates can still play at top form, him on a line with Ryan Smyth could be very interesting. Even if Oates is completely out of shape, he's still one of the top 3 faceoff men in the game.

Edited for grammer.

Oates played pretty well for a man his age in Anaheim last year. He's a good pickup, and should bring a lot to that team both in a statistical and a leadership sense. The bigger implication? I take this as a pretty sure sign that the Oilers have abandonned hope of bringing back Mike Comrie, or acquiring anything of value for his rights.

Lucky Oates-he gets to play at the Heritage Classic this Saturday.

Kevin Lowe has been shopping around Comrie since before the season started, I believe. Nothing worthwhile has come of it.

He gets to be there but MARK MESSIER is the playing *IN* the Heritage Classic Game. Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, back together again! The Habs tried to get Patrick Roy as a ringer but he's busy.

Keep in mind that the 'sufficiently talented' players still differed from team to team. Despite the smaller league, shitty teams still existed...just ask all of those Rangers, Bruins and Blackhawks teams that went years without sniffing the Cup.
